Oh, I just can't stand it any longer! Spell checker checking in here!

It's *asceticism*!

Acetic acid is a colorless pungent liquid acid C2H4O2 that is the chief
acid of vinegar and that is used especially in synthesis (as of
plastics)

ascetic means
1 : practicing strict self-denial as a measure of personal and
especially spiritual discipline
2 : austere in appearance, manner, or attitude

(That's from that dictionary site I shared a little while ago! -

The thread is fascinating anyway!
